The Underground Kitchen Comes To Fort Lauderdale
What do you get when you mix a little suspense with delicious food? The Underground Kitchen.
The Underground Kitchen is a supper club that gives members access to a five- to seven-course gourmet meal prepared by a premier chef in an undisclosed location—and now Fort Lauderdale locals can get in on the mystery on April 14.
Dinners held by The Underground Kitchen are always unexpected as each chef chosen to create the meal makes a menu for the event that differs from the chef's restaurant. Each Underground dinner also has a different theme, menu and atmosphere, making sure no two events are alike.
Not only is The Underground Kitchen secretive, but it’s also intimate. Only 25 to 40 people are able to purchase a ticket, but anyone can register to receive the invitation that gets sent out only a few days before the tickets go on sale.
In the invites, only three pieces of information are included: the date of the dinner, the date and time the tickets go on sale and a clue about the location of the event. The menu and location are kept secret until the last possible moment.
The Fort Lauderdale dinner will be hosted by chef J Ponder, known for his modern Caribbean cuisine. He appeared on Food Network’s “Chopped” in 2013, and won the network’s “Cutthroat Kitchen” in 2015.
The April 14 dinner will have a modern Caribbean theme. Cocktails will be served at 6:30 p.m. and dinner will begin at 7 p.m.
Tickets for the event include the meal, wine and gratuity. They are first come, first serve and sales are limited to two tickets per member. For more information, or to purchase tickets ($150 per person) to the dinner being held in Fort Lauderdale, click here.
